Beast mode ;)

J: I have banana hair!

D: It's 100 o'clock!
J to C: YOU DON'T TALK TO ME WHEN I'M TALKING TO MOM! YOU STAY SHUT UP!
Me: I think I'll have an English muffin.
D: Mom, I like you.
D: C, there's a white jacket near you!
(Yellow jackets, teehee!)
D: I think it's time to swim in the pool and have a popsicle!
Me: Uhm, D, it's 9 in the morning.
D: We're in the blue dot!
When Dad went to Texas, I showed him where we were (blue dot), and where Dad was (red dot).
D: I like the white potato kind!
(Referring to the piña colada Slurpee flavor)
J: Ready Mom? You have to open the fridge and go "AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!"
On jelly beans...
J: This one is red poison!
One exclusive bean in every kid mix ;)
(8/12) Work from home day for me, and Dad had the kiddos. D took an epic nap because someone refused to go to sleep last night until super late. Sigh. Which means he'll probably be up late again night too. Yippee!
(8/13) Dad fixed us a fancy breakfast of (leftover) steak, eggs, AND bacon! I hauled the boys to the gym, and then took them slip 'n sliding over at Sarah's house. Gotta work off the grub somehow :) Dad and I ran a bunch of errands, and both got our hairs cut.
(8/14) C is really in to cooking lately, and made himself breakfast this morning. Since it was getting warm out, I took the boys to Silver Lake for a picnic lunch. We lazed away the afternoon, trying not to melt. Dad came home, and barbecued. C got to help with that too. All the boys agree that he needs to be a chef.
(8/15) I took the boys to the gym this morning, and then we headed out to Flowing Lake with Sarah and her boys. We had a lovely afternoon. C spent the entire time in the lake. He's become quite the fish this summer! Sarah's older kiddo spent the night tonight, and the boys had fun.
(8/16) I hid the electronics and left the older boys a note that they couldn't play screen time until after breakfast at 8am. C got up, made eggs for breakfast, and the boys stayed pretty quiet until I got up with the twins. We met up with Sarah for a walk, and then went to McCollum Pool for open swim. C took and passed the swim test allowing him in the deep end, and access to the water slide. D swam under water, and was a jumping fool. Even J got his head wet, and was in the deep end for most of the time.
(8/17) I rented Zootopia and Angry Birds as a treat for the kids last night, complete with movie candy. We watched Angry Birds last night, and Zootopia today. The boys loved Angry Birds, even though it was a pretty cheesy movie. We walked them back to the grocery store today, but that was the extent of our venturing out.
(8/18) We headed out camping this morning. We went to Wenatchee State Park. We couldn't find C's fishing pole, so Dad went out and got him another one before we left. Once we got to the park, we walked down to the river to see if we could find a place for him to test it out. No luck, but we did end up at the lake, and all of us but Dad headed in to cool off. The truck said 91* when we got there, and I know the temp only climbed from there.
(8/19) We drove around this morning a bit to explore, and found an awesome & free place to camp. We had to sign some paperwork for our house sale (more on that later), and ended up at the Plain Cafe for lunch. Quite tasty! We went back to camp for more swimming and stayed down at the lake until it was almost time for dinner. Aside from some obnoxious neighbors late tonight, we had a fabulous trip!
(8/20) This morning we were up pretty early. We broke camp and came home for some much needed showers. We learned today that our house deal fell apart... our buyer got cold feet after all this time. Grumble. We do have a back-up in place, so please everyone cross your fingers! We went out to drown our sorrows in Slurpees, and came home to barbecue and have dinner outside tonight. Dad said he was in a state of barbecue nostalgia... using his dad's sauce recipe, and the Kamado grill.
(8/21) Work day for Dad, and lazy Sunday recouping from a week off for me & the boys. Back to reality tomorrow.
